Nothing happened to it. Dengeki only said that the game is in development and would be released later this year. They didn't mention when it would be announced.

The more annoying thing is that the 6th archstone in the original Demon's Souls is never accessible.. :lol

Maybe the sequel will have 6 archstones.

Maybe the sequel is a prequel, and you can actually play in the land of the giants, when people fought the "invasion" of the fog.

If they fix the ridiculous ragdolls of enemies, I'm in. If not, I'm still in. But I rather would have the ragdolls not fly around like they have no weight.

I like the crazy ragdolls, it only added to Demon's Souls unique charm. After defeating some of the tougher enemies I like to do a "victory dance" by running back and forth on their body while their corpse spazes out.

Demon's Souls meets SotC.

Make. It. Happen.

Let's just hope the game they've hinted at is actually demon's souls 2. It would be a huge cop out if it turns out to be something else.

I really want to see this happen; I really want to see this fucking happen. Oh and really glad to hear EU is finally getting DS. Sony really needs to hold on tight to this IP...

Part of what made this game great was learning it. By the end, I knew how the game worked and the wonder was gone. It was still great, but it wasn't as awe inspiring.

If they can recapture that wonder, I'm down with a sequel. But if they make the same game again, it won't be the same experience again.

I never managed to get my mind around the whole while/black tendencies thing so that's really the main thing I'd love to see addressed in the sequel (make it less obscure).

Can't wait for it.

I'd love to see a higher difficulty. Nothing screamed old school gaming to me than getting killed by a boss and then running to forums to scream for help. This is why downing each boss was sweet and felt like an accomplishment. Sort of like SotC

I'd like to see a more refined world tendency system too, but I would love to see a randomised loot drop as well a la Borderlands/Diablo.

If Demon's Souls 2 has:

more unique bosses (especially huge ones)
better loot and inventory UI
global server instead of regional (there's no voice chat so why not?)

it'll be easily worth my $60.

IMO they should just dissipate like when you kill an NPC.

My personal dreams for a sequel:
-Have World Tendency impact weather/atmosphere
-Have New Game + and beyond adjust the difficulty based on the level you go in rather than by a set % for each NG+
-Library/Land of Giants/Area Outside Nexus :D

Though the game could be more of the same with new areas and it wouldn't bother me much really. :lol

I always love spasming ragdolls that you can kick around and get stuck to you in games. I always find it hilarious.
